Nice to meet you!
My name is Steve Whiteside PhD and I founded Inspiration by Design.
As well I have a passion for coaching and I enjoy helping leaders get around the barriers that stand between them and their success.
You ask, where I come from? I moved to Canada in 1989 and started my managerial and entrepreneurial life with CompuCollege, a Private College here in British Columbia, shortly thereafter. As one of the leaders, the company grew from $1.5M to over $12M in revenue in just over five years, and by the mid-90s CompuCollege was the leader in Private Post-Secondary Education in British Columbia. When CompuCollege was sold, I purchased a college called Academy of Learning and tripled its size in less than two years, using the same team that was on board when I purchased it. I came to realize at an early age, that if I let my team members dream and control their destinies they would take greater ownership of their responsibilities, and I set off to apply that lesson to my future ventures.
Though I have a wide body of additional community service and leadership experience on boards and serving as president as well, it is this combination of practical and academic experience that gives me a unique edge in my consulting practice as well as my coaching. Like many consultants and coaches I can offer an independent set of eyes to analyze a situation, but as someone responsible for multimillion-dollar businesses, I also hold an invaluable insider understanding of what has to go into managerial decision making. Not a lot of consultants and coaches have the practical, academic and experiential background that I have. This allows me to tailor my approach to each client to help bring out the answers you didn’t know you had to the questions that have been nagging for months (or sometimes years). It’s all about you, your potential, and your and your organization’s growth.
